Video: Bill Self breaks down Kansas vs. Richmond match-up

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

The last time the two teams faced each other, Kansas eliminated Richmond in the Sweet 16 round of the 2011 NCAA Tournament.

Kansas basketball coach Bill Self and some Jayhawks players spoke to the media on Monday about the team's upcoming game on Tuesday night against the Richmond Spiders. The Jayhawks and Spiders haven't met since Richmond was eliminated from the Sweet 16 of the 2011 NCAA Tournament after a 77-57 win for Kansas.

In a video released Monday, Self spoke of the quality of Richmond and mentioned the last meeting between the two teams:

Richmond enters the game with a 9-2 record and a five-game winning streak, including overtime wins against William & Mary and James Madison. The only two losses for the Spiders came against Minnesota and, most recently, a 73-48 rout at the hands of the Ohio Bobcats.

Kansas bounced back from a 67-64 loss to the Michigan State Spartans early in the season and has won seven straight games, six of those by double figures. They enter the game with an 8-1 overall record.
